Stay Young Again, with YTE

Today I wanted to start a series of discussions on Young Tissue Extract, otherwise known as YTE. This is starting to create some noise here in Manila, and it's worth looking into.

YTE is derived from fertilized hen eggs that are incubated just until they reach the preembryonic stage. As the eggs approach this stage, biological substances are activated that exhibit favorable metabolic properties. The biological substances derived from the eggs are from protein fractions extracted at a precise point in development when key nutrients reach their peak concentration.

According to its proponents, YTE contains a natural combination of nutrients, including amino acids, glycopeptides, and oligopeptides, which form after fertilization. Once an egg is fertilized, a tremendous amount of activity takes place, including cellular growth, which is supported by the development of a high concentration of nutrients.

But the question is, can you not get these from nutritious foods today? What about the risk of salmonella. Also, not all eggs are the same. And cholesterol? You bet, that can be an issue. But according to the "experts" of YTE, in the pre-embryonic stage, 90% of cholesterol is consumed by the egg itself, so it shouldn't be a problem - well at least in theory.

Supplements based on YTE is said to slow down the aging process.

What do you think?

On Family and Life ...

You have probably come across this speech before, but it is worth mentioning again as it is very inspiring. It reminded me of 3 movies I have watched which I highly recommend for all of us who want to grow our marriage and strengthen our family ties.

These 3 movies are: Fireproof, Unanswered Prayers, and Courageous. Watch it with your spouse and be inspired!

This was written by the CEO of Coca-Cola, Brian G. Dyson, and was used as Georgia Tech's Commencement Address.

"Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them - Work - Family - Health - Friends - Spirit, and you're keeping all of these in the air.

You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls -- family, health, friends and spirit are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered.

They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life. How?

  1. Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special.
  2. Don't set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you.
  3. Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.
  4. Don't let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live ALL the days of your life.
  5. Don't give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.
  6. Don't be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect. It is this fragile thread that binds us together.
  7. Don't be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.
  8. Don't shut love out of your life by saying it's impossible to find. The quickest way to receive love is to give; the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep love is to give it wings.
  9. Don't run through life so fast that you forget not only where you've been, but also where you are going.
  10. Don't forget that a person's greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated.
  11. Don't be afraid to learn. Knowledge is weightless, a treasure you can always carry easily.
  12. Don't use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved."
